7:03 am
[ applause ] welcome to "cbs this morning." the latest cbs news national poll out this morning shows donald trump remains the republican presidential front-runner. 35% of gop primary voters across the country support trump. that nearly doubles ted cruz. he is in second place at 18%. but another new poll finds cruz taking a narrow two-point lead in the national race. the candidates are still slugging it out in south carolina and major garrett is in charleston, following all of the republican candidates with two days to go before the republican primary. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump has a big lead here and a team of lawyers he says is ready to sue top rival ted cruz, not once but twice. once over a campaign ad.
7:04 am
canadian birthday. cruz has argued nine cases before supreme court can't wait and may handle the disposition of trump himself. this concludes the law and order portion of our south carolina republican presidential primary coverage. >> i've had great success with lawsuits. i've had great success in things i do and i don't know that we are going to have a lawsuit, but we certainly want to keep somebody honest. >> reporter: in dueling television town halls last night, donald trump and ted cruz aired their legal laundry. >> at last, this has not been a typically race by any sense. and i don't think anyone is surprised that donald is threatening to sue people. he has done that most of his adult life. >> reporter: trump has threatened to sue over this ad that shows his previous support for abortion rights. >> i am pro choice in every respect. >> reporter: trump's lawyers said in a letter to cruz's campaign the ad was, quote, replete with outright lies and misrepresents that mr. trump is pro choice. wednesday night, cruz said a
7:05 am
words would fail. >> it is quite literally the most ridiculous theory i've ever heard that telling the voters what donald trump's actual record is deceitful in lying. i invited mr. trump. i said, please, donald, file this lawsuit. >> reporter: also part of a town hall discussion, marco rubio echoed trump's charge that cruz is a serial liar. >> i said he has been lying because if you say something that isn't true and you say it over and over again and you know it's not true there is no other word for it. >> reporter: rubio has the support of south carolina governor nikki haley. she stumbled out of the gate. >> this is one of many bruises i will take from marco rubio. we make presidents. let's make marco rubio the next president of the united states! god bless! >> reporter: rubio is now cornered the market on new establishment south carolina republican endorsements. haley, u.s. senator tim scott
7:06 am
elected after 2010 and with tea party inspired political sense abilities and not enough sure if it's enough to propel him past trump's campaign. john dickerson is in washington. john, good morning. >> good morning. >> reporter: how do people make sense when they see competing national polls? >> well, they should treat them very, very gingerly. in february of 2012, rick santorum was up over mitt romney by about ten points. what they give us a sense of where the low information voter is. as primaries and caucuses, the ones we have been focusing on as the big gets more national and we have these big days like super tuesday, national polls give us a better sense as the contest gets bigger. we basically, right now, the game is in south carolina. >> how much of a difference do you think, john, governor haley's endorsement will make for marco rubio? >> in a year where the
7:07 am
odor with the republican voters, i think establishment endorsements probably don't mean that much. they don't mean that much any way. nikki haley endorsed mitt romney and newt gingrich won the south carolina primary in 2012. so i think in the battle between marco rubio and jeb bush it's nice to have something on your side if you're marco rubio. in that respect, it helps. but it's not going to, i don't think, give him a huge boost in south carolina. >> john, in some ways, haley's endorsement of marco rubio a blow to jeb bush? apparently, former president george w. bush met privately with haley on monday to ask for brother. >> jeb bush's argument is senators. he said i've had experience. so it would have been nice to have a fellow governor say i agree with that. and so in the news cycles, it's not good for jeb bush. he was trying to build a little something in south carolina. if he doesn't do well in south
7:08 am
rubio, it's a real blow to his campaign. so, yes, this is jeb bush would have liked this, but his challenges go well beyond the endorsements he is not getting. >> john, let me switch you across the country to nevada where polls in the democratic race suggest tightening and very tight. >> yeah. the key thing to watch about nevada if bernie sanders does better he has to do well with non-white voters and one of the bigger challenges for his campaign. if he can do it in nevada, maybe do it in other places and interests me about nevada. >> john, thank you so much. sources confirm to cbs news overnight that the white house is set to announce today that president obama will make a historic visit to cuba. the short stop over in march will mark another huge step toward improving relations. the plan drew immediate criticism from critics, including republican presidential candidates. no sitting president has visited there is your fun fact for the day. >> thank you, norah o'donnell. >> write that down.
7:09 am
apple is getting support this morning from another high-tech heavyweight in its standoff with the fbi. google's ceo says apple is right to defy a judge's order to help unlock the iphone used by one of the san bernardino killers. the fbi needs just four digits to crack this code. jeff pegues is in washington with the escalating fight. >> reporter: good morning. apple's lawyers are digging in. industry sources say the tech giant is ready to fight this all the way to the supreme court. the fbi is locked out of syed farook's iphone. they say apple is not a company that hands over its company's private information. the u.s. magistrate judge ordered apple to -- apple's ceo tim cook says the tech giant doesn't have the technology and
7:10 am
a back door to not only that iphone but millions of devices. the white house defended the department of justice's request for apple to aid in an investigation. the president calls an important national priority. >> they are not asking apple to redesign its product or to create a new back door to one of their products. they are simply asking for something that would have an impact on this one device. >> reporter: as the war on terror and the right to privacy collide, cnet's dan ackerman says apple and the fbi have competing and compelling interests. >> apple says if you promise you only use it once it's going to get used again and again and once you create the precedent of giving that access once you're not able to deny at the time next time. >> reporter: google's ceo posted a series of tweets wednesday citing with apple, saying we give law enforcement access to data based on valid legal orders, but that is wholly
7:11 am
companies to enable hacking of customer devices and data. in the two months since farook and his wife tashfeen malik killed 14 people in san bernardino, california, the fbi is poring over theirs electronic and internet history and discovered evidence that farook and malik sympathized with isis and other islamic radicals leading up to the terror attack. publicly, apple says it doesn't have the technology to do what the fbi wants but a top industry official tells cbs news that apple could theoretically write the software to comply with that ruling. a los angeles hospital admits it paid nearly $17,000 in ransom to hackers. the fbi is investigating the cyber attack that disabled the computer network at the hollywood presbyterian medical center. carter evans is at the hospital with the story behind the ransom payment. good morning. >> reporter: good morning.
7:12 am
was not affected by the attack and computer systems are up and running again. authorities are now searching for these hackers who were paid with bit coin. a digital currency that is nearly impossible to trace. and while the hospital says it notified law enforcement immediately, we are now learning that may not be the case. in a brazen attack, hackers disabled the computer network of the hollywood presbyterian medical center. a source familiar with the investigation tells cbs news, the hospital paid the nearly $17,000 ransom to take back control before contacting law enforcement. in a statement, the president of the hospital said, the quickest and most efficient way to restore our systems was to pay the ransom. >> if they decide to pay the ransom, it probably means they didn't have very good backups and weren't able to recover the data and that the data would have been lost if they didn't pay the ransom. >> reporter: on february 5th, hackers infiltrated the
7:13 am
is known as ransomware that held sensitive information and files on the network hostage and making it accessible only with the use of a decryption key provided after ransom was paid. >> hospitals are a very big target now. >> reporter: dave kennedy runs a cyber security firm and has attacks. he says after highly publicized data breaches involving credit card companies hackers are moving on to easier targets and many hospitals have been slow to adequately secure their networks. a 2015 study found that criminal cyberattacks on health care organizations have increased 125% since 2010 and the danger can sometimes be life threaten. >> when the ransom pieces affect the machines it's causing the system to stop functioning and can definitely impact life and systems that support life. >> reporter: now if hackers are able to gain access to medical records, they will have social security number and other
7:14 am
be sold on the black market. cyber security experts tell us it's the smaller networks like hospitals and schools that are especially susceptible to these ransomware attacks. >> thank you, carter. this morning, cbs news poll shows americans are split over the president's plan to nominate a successor to supreme court justice antonin scalia. 47% in our poll says the president should choose a nomination this year and 46% say the nomination should be made after the november election. margaret brennan is at the white house with reaction. >> reporter: good morning. president obama decision to skip the saturday funeral of justice scalia is being seen by some as a snub of the conservative judge. and a missed opportunity by others. former obama administration
7:15 am
want to reduce partisanship we can honor those who we disagree with. the president will pay his respects on friday when ska lee''s body is in repose at the supreme court. there is no protocol. while george w. bush delivered the eulogy at justice rankin's funeral his predecessor bill clinton attended two services and skipped the services for two others. the white house won't say whether it was the president's schedule or security concerns or another factor that led him to bow out. but, norah, it has become yet another politically charged moment ahead of that fierce battle to fill justice scalia's seat. >> thank you, margaret. turkey blames this morning a syrian with ties to a kurdish militia for a devastating bomb attack. the car bomb attack killed 28 people and hit dozenses more in

8:03 am
record is deceitful and lying. >> at the same town hall, marco rubio, again, called ted cruz a liar and accused him of consistently repeating things about rubio that cruz notion to be untrue. >> rubio has won the coveted endorsement of south carolina governor nikki haley. jeb bush who wanted that endorsement says he is disappointed she didn't choose him. his brother former president george w. bush met with haley privately on monday. at a bush event yesterday, south carolina supporters told bush how worried they are about the campaign and some shared their advice what turned into a campaign session. >> if you can raise the bar in the next session, and try to -- try to be beyond, you know, the bullying, because i think that is who you are. i think the campaign has been co-oped by the p.t. barnum of our time and i think he is

i would encourage you to emphasize those things more. >> this is what i do. this is called campaigning right now. >> no. i mean, sir, on the more national level, to the extent that you can. i know when you get into those debates, it's a free-for-all sometimes. >> oh, yeah. >> but i would encourage you to go, not just on your record but on your plan. >> those bush supporters and other south carolina republicans vote in two days. the campaigns are bombarding them with television ads and reaching out in other ways as well. one voter showed major garrett how overwhelming this media blitz can be. carolina. good morning again. >> reporter: good morning. if you're a south carolina republican, you simply cannot avoid presidential campaign phone calls, five, six, sometimes more a day. either. five, six, sometimes more a day. and then there are the campaign volunteers who knock on your door five -- well, not that no.
